    Bench top drill press recommendations?

    Looking to buy an el cheapo bench top drill press. Don't need one often, but when I do I really need it. Any such thing as a decent one for under $100? I've been trolling around but am not having any luck.

    my 2 cents would be to get a standing/floor model not a bench top. It gives you a lot more options when working on things. If you want something cheap check harbor freight tools

    If I had room for a floor model I wouldn't have asked for a bench top model, McFly.

    I'll check Harbor Freight this weekend. There's one around the corner from me.

    Harbor freight has a great benchtop drill press that is on sale now and again for $39.99.

    Try your local craigslist...I've gotten a few good tools from my local list. Old tools clean up good with some elbow grease...Many times cheaper than what they were asking
